It was a fascinating place and well worth the visit. We had a lovely brunch there like nothing I have ever had before and were surrounded by such architecture. It was AMAZING.

We thought the Han was lovely and peaceful. There are a few restaurants and shops there but it was quiet and cool.

Buyuk Ham (Great Inn) is a beautiful old traveller’s stopover which has been well preserved. The inner courtyard and first floor contain craft shops. Very enchanting.

We didn't spend a long time in the Han, but a quick look around found plenty of independent shops selling clothes and souvenirs, and places to eat in pleasant surroundings.

Was a nice experience to see 2 cultures and a peace of no mans land in a small area. Good to go shopping and a bit of culture.
